FRENCH-SPEAKING COUNTRIES CARDS

FRENCH-SPEAKING COUNTRIES CARDS

A SET OF 80 MATCHING GAMES CARDS SHOWING COUNTRIES, FLAGS AND CAPITAL CITIES OF 40 COUNTRIES WHERE FRENCH IS AN OFFICIAL LANGUAGE Students can really get to know LES PAYS FRANCOPHONES by playing a range of games with the cards, completely independently. I’ve included a full reference resource too, which is great not only for when you’re focusing on French-speaking countries, but also as an all-year round resource. Allow students about 60 seconds on a timer to really focus their reading and to increase the sense of competition if you’re playing any of the whole-group games! There may be a number of countries and capital cities that students do not know, or are not aware of, so the games help them fully develop their general awareness, knowledge and understanding of LES PAYS FRANCOPHONES. Laminate the cards and reference sheets if you can - you will be able to use them for years to come. The resource consists of two, non-editable files in a zipped format. Please read the TERMS OF USE carefully - the resource is copyright, and for single-teacher / purchaser / classroom use only. MERCI BEAUCOUP ET BON VOYAGE !

07) Arthur visits Paris - mixed verbs in the passé composé

The Arthur series of comics in French, help our students who are working with Tapis Volant 2 but can be used by anyone. This is the seventh one in the series. It demonstrates use of diferent passé composé verbs used together. On the cover page there are comprehension questions. Sadly, I cannot upload the sound file but a teacher can read out the text. We use the this for both listening and reading comprehension. You can white out the words if you want to use it for listening and students then have the comic pictures as support. There is a you tube video to support this. It can also be used to show students about the sites to see in Paris. There is also a version using the future proche which may be more suitable for students who have not yet done the passé composé and will fit with unit 3 of Tapis Volant 2.

30 French speaking prompt question cards - Le Petit Prince

30 French speaking prompt question cards - Le Petit Prince

Use these insightful and thought provoking question cards to trigger great discussions among your students about the wonderful book by Antoine de Saint Exupéry, le Petit Prince. Use the cards to teach them the vocabulary if you want. This activity is a fun way to encourage your students to speak more and engage in conversation. It is a perfect resource to use in immersion, core or homeschool curriculums. You will have to read and study the book prior to using these questions. You can use these cards after teaching specific vocabulary and grammar for le Petit Prince or as a fun interactive activity on a day when you want to just focus on speaking and reviewing vocabulary in a different way. Read on to find out the many ways I like to use these cards including the popular SCOOT game. Instructions and recording sheet are included. All cards are visually stimulating and feature a circle to punch out in the upper left corner so that you can print, laminate, cut out, punch holes and hook the cards together with a ring. Using these cards this way makes it easy to pull them out year after year to use as NO PREP speaking activities. Included: ➱ 30 speaking prompt cards - color (4 per page to print and cut out) ➱ 30 speaking prompt cards - grayscale ➱ PDF version to project and avoid printing (1 card per page to project) ➱ 9 different ways to use these cards ➱ Scoot game instructions ➱ Scoot recording sheet There are many ways you can use these cards: ✫ Print, laminate, cut out, punch holes and attach on a ring for small groups to ask and answer questions. ✫ Project the pdf file in class to work in group or with your whole class and avoid printing. ✫ Use as a warm-up speaking activity with a conversation partner. As students enter the classroom have them choose 2-3 cards from a box. ✫ Students who finish their work earlier than others can choose a few of the cards and write out correct answers to false statements. ✫ Use as exit tickets. Give each student a card before the end of class and as they walk out of the room they tell the teacher their answer. ✫ Stations: Put students into groups and divide the cards amongst them. Have groups rotate to a new station as they finish the cards. ✫ Scoot: Put one card on each desk in the classroom. Give each student a response sheet and set a timer to give them just enough time to answer true or false and to correct the false statements. When the timer rings students move on to the next desk and the next question. All cards are numbered so it is simple to stay organized. Full instructions are included. ✫ Use the cards with board games. Students must answer a question in order to move. ✫ Use the cards as an icebreaker activity at the beginning of the school year or right after school holidays. ✫ Great resource for tutoring sessions and vocabulary building.
